The Dog Portrait In Oils
Watch as I demonstrate painting a dog portrait in oils, capturing a likeness as rapidly as possible.
Within the video, I clearly explain my focus on the accuracy of drawing, values, edges, texture, and color. You will learn to paint the portrait alla prima, with dynamic brushwork and texture, achieving not only a likeness, but an energetic and engaging painting.
My simple steps for evaluating your paintings in progress will improve not only your skills as a pet portrait painter, but your painting abilities in general.

OMG.....I just watched your dog portrait video, and it was over the top FABULOUS!!! I learned so much and will rewatch many times in the next three months of the rental. You are just awesome and a great teacher!! I look forward to taking another “video workshop” or a face to face workshop from you soon!!! Thanks again for making the video!!!

I just finished watching it. It was such a great, succinct way of explaining, all that is needed for a painting to be successful. At the same time, the way you paint, laying each brushstroke down (without blending) is fantastic! Also you handle edges differently, which is great.
I think one of the most important things you do is not to make a line drawing! Your paintings are very expressive with beautiful brushwork. There are many other great things that I liked but won’t divulge. I don’t want to give away too much. This video is great for beginners and for intermediate to advanced! I believe it will definitely put one’s paintings to the next level if they follow your method of painting. I’m so glad that I have a workshop with you in September. It will help me try your method before then!

This is a great video full of information. My daughter has a b&w farm dog named Huk. Will start using your techniques today for the Hukster portrait! Bravo....really looking forward to your next available option.

Patrick - thank you so much for offering this video. It's so so good. I rented it because I decided to take on a dog portrait (for a gift for daughter-in-law since I can't go shopping) and thought I needed a bit of guidance. And it did that in spades. The best part is the lessons are applicable to EVERYTHING we paint. It's so well done too. Loved seeing every stroke, every decision so clearly and your narration was so helpful. Thanks again for doing these - a little silver lining in these crazy times! It was one of the best I’ve seen. Can’t wait for additional offerings.

Patrick, I just rented your video and think it’s fantastic!! It is a wonderful refresher of all the things you demonstrated in your workshop. The 3-month rental term is great and a wonderfully affordable value.
I look forward to your future videos! Thanks
